Speculation that large gatherings could be banned until March
There’s speculation that large scale gatherings could be banned by the government until March next year.
Currently the ban on crowds of more than 1,000 ends in September. But it’s thought the Federal Council could extend that into 2021 when it next meets in three weeks.
The head of the Lausanne Hockey Club, Patrick de Preux, told a press conference yesterday he’s heard that’s the current thinking of ministers.
Sports clubs are alarmed. The president of the Sion Football Club in Valais, Christian Constantin, says it could be the end of professional sports as clubs could not survive.
